Pancreatitis causes

Causes could include:

  • Gallstones are hard deposits in the gallbladder that can eventually block the exiting bile ducts. Abdominal pain, fever, itchy skin, and jaundice are symptoms.
  • Infection is the invasion and replication of microorganisms-viruses, bacteria, protozoa, or fungi-in body tissues.
  • Infectious diseases are those that are transmitted from person to person by direct or indirect contact. Viruses, bacteria, parasites, and fungi all cause infectious disease.
  • Drinking too much alcohol, or being unable to control consumption, can indicate alcohol abuse or alcoholism. Too much alcohol in the blood or having withdrawal can lead to serious mental and physical symptoms.
